BACKGROUND A consensus conference recommended empirical antibiotic therapy for all patients with postoperative meningitis and treatment withdrawal after 48 or 72 h if cerebrospinal fluid culture results are negative. However, this approach is not universally accepted and has not been assessed in clinical trials. METHODS We performed a cohort study of all(More)
We have studied the results of carotid occlusion in the treatment of giant intracavernous carotid artery (ICA) aneurysms in 40 patients. Clinical, angiographic, Doppler and cerebral blood flow (CBF) criteria for tolerance of occlusion are discussed. The patients had headaches (47.5%), cranial nerve compression (87.5%), decreased visual acuity (20%),(More)
We report a case of infratentorial primary paraganglioma for which we have a 10-year incomplete pretreatment clinical and radiological follow-up. Partial surgical removal followed by external radiotherapy resulted in stable disease at 6 years follow-up. We compare our patient's case with similar cases reported in the literature.
This paper reports two cases of orbital apex syndrome. The most salient clinical signs, ophthalmoplegia and eyelid ptosis, arose from perineural spread of facial squamous cell carcinomas that were previously excised with tumour-free surgical margins and exhibited no signs of local or other regional recurrence. The interest of these two cases lies in the(More)
This retrospective study analyzed 29 cerebral abscesses of ear, nose, and throat (ENT) origin. The mean follow-up of patients was 37 months. ENT etiologies included 45% otitis media (n = 13), 48% sinusitis (n = 14), and 7% ethmoidal sinus tumors (n = 2). Thirty-eight percent (n = 5) of otogenic abscesses occurred within 15 days after a mastoidectomy.(More)
In the rat brain, the presynaptic 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) autoreceptors located on 5-HT terminals correspond to the 5-HT1B subtype. The presence of a 5-HT receptor probably located on 5-HT nerve endings and modulating transmitter release in the human neocortex has been reported, but its detailed pharmacological characterization is not yet available. On(More)
OBJECTIVES Postoperative spondylodiscitis (POS) is poorly characterized, partly owing to its rarity. The aim of this prospective study was to compare the clinical, biological, bacteriological, and imaging features of postoperative and spontaneous spondylodiscitis (SS). METHODS A multidisciplinary spondylodiscitis cohort follow-up study was conducted(More)
OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE The cavernous sinus is an exceptional location for intracranial tuberculomas. A rapid diagnosis, based on pathological findings, improves the prognosis. CLINICAL PRESENTATION A case of left cavernous sinus tuberculoma, revealed by frontal headaches and ipsilateral palsies of Cranial Nerves III and V, in a 48-year-old patient is(More)
